it but this is what happens when stuff fades, when you forget the horror of sandy hook and you just -- when you start to hear details of this kind of stuff it brings it all home again. that's why we cannot let this fade. you talk about mental health being an issue, how about the mental health issues the policemen are going to have that had to go into sandy hook first or the aurora theatre. colorado police officers testifying about what they found. that's the thing is they think oh, well don't talk about that stuff. it is politicizing it. it is not politicizing it. it is what is the reality of this? and you look at that guy. you're like how did that guy jared loughner, how did that guy get a gun? that's all of the background check you need. just look at him! anyway -- >> you're discriminating against the criminally crazy. >> stephanie: i apologize -- i debated whether i should read some of it but it is on the paper and i'm sure a lot of people heard it and heard the testimony but this is the reality we're talking about. you remember that was the first thing we said, chris about sandy hook, imagine wha
the next round of victims of hurricane sandy, you best not have the title porker of the month on your resume. unfortunately, it's too late for kansas republican lynn jenkins, who posted this on facebook yesterday. i hope congress will devise a plan to directly help sandy victims that will be offset with spending reductions and be free of wasteful pork barrel spending. jenkins was one of 67 house republicans who voted against last week's sandy bill, but flashback to april 2009, jenkins scored the porker of the month award from the citizens against government waste. well, the group took jenkins to task for requesting earmarks for her own constituency, $2 million worth in a 2010 appropriations bill. $2 million in pork. >>> finally, a big win for bill clinton, and it's not political. his daughter chelsea is already carrying on as a successful person in her own right, but all the same, bubba just scored the honor of father of the year from the national father's day council. a statement from the organization says with the profound generosity, leadership, and tireless dedication to both his

continued to increase to push for relief on hurricane sandy. >> what specifically do you want your party in washington to learn? >> well, i mean first off, that something like sandy is and was above politics. >> according to a new national ppp poll, 51% of registered voters view governor chris christie favorably, 23% of them view him unfavorably. chris christie is actually more popular among democrats than republicans. 52% of democrats view him favorably, 23% unfavorably, just 40% of republicans view him favorably, 20% unfavorably. the governor is popular among independents. 18% unfavorably. today, the governor did not rule out a run for president. >> what are the prospects of that run? >> the call comes in 2016 you will be ready? >> listen, i will be more ready than i was in 2012. >> krystal ball, that is as much of an i'm running statement that you could make this far ahead of 2016? >> yes, i think that is right. obviously, about all the press he is embracing and being on the cover of "time," et cetera, that is not specific for him to win re-election in new jersey. you do notice after
today, gop amendments could derail sandy aid again. here are some amendments they are adding, across the board cuts in spending and killing transit subsidies for federal employees and prohibiting t.a.r.p. obligations. are you concerned? >> i'm very concerned. i was concerned when we passed the $9.7 billion and i saw 60 republicans voting no for just for flood insurance. i am very concerned. and i said on the floor that day -- >> is this going to turn into a big fight? could this not happen? >> until it happens -- others have been saying until it happens it has not opened. i know when it's open for amendments on the floor and what gets on there, i'm concerned. >> we have never as a country had fights about helping people when there's been -- what's changed? >> you know what, that's what's devastating to me. that's why i made an open invitation to the speaker to walk with me in my district so you can look into the eyes of americans, not democrats or republicans, but americans who have had their lives turned upsidedown by superstorm sandy and say how are you going to deny these american
drought and, of course, superstorm sandy. the house was there -- >> right. >> reporter: and the water pushed it all the way over here. many cities had record warmth, including washington, d.c., where a lack of action on man-made climate change is likely to mean 2012 is just a glimpse into an unpleasant future, according to many scientists. so, we shouldn't expect this is the last record? >> this is by no means the last record. i mean, you really got to think of climate change as something that increases our risk for being unlucky. so, we need to prepare up front, as we move into, you know, this warmer, hotter, more extreme world. >> reporter: so, how do we prepare? her advice, take stock of where you live and protect your home by doing things like becoming more energy efficient, getting a generator, possibly, buying flood insurance, maybe, and possibly even raising up your water heater if it's in the basement. diane? >> and i know you are going to be speaking with an american family going through their house to address just that. >> reporter: fascinating. >> thank you so much, dan. th

heartbroken families lost a child in the sandy hook school shooting. i know how much it hurts. my 9-year-old daughter was murdered in the tucson shooting. i have one question for our political leaders. when will you find the courage to stand up to the gun lobby? whose child has to die next? to every mother, we cannot wait. we have to demand a plan. go to demandaplan.org and add your name. >> mayors against illegal actions fund is responsible for the content in this advertising, which have to demand a plan, concrete action. that message today from the mother of the youngest victim of the tucson mass shooting, which was two years ago today. this is kind of an amazing detail about this. that ad was scheduled to air today in tucson at precisely 10:10 local time, to coincide exactly with the exact time that the shooter in that incident opened fire two years ago. this is serious political pressure. this is not just about raising awareness or something, or seeking donations for groups that will work on this in a generic way. this is about using awareness and concern that really already exists t
in the wake of the massacre at sandy hook elementary. but it did not necessarily leave many with high expectations. businesses that sell a lot of guns like walmart will also be in on some meetings. those groups are more likely to be influenced by the nra since they're making a big profit off those firearms. and they do not want to appear too entrenched in the white house's anti-gun push. >>> walmart says after the shooting, guns are now one of their highest-selling items. while it does want to help the administration, when that starts to contradict with sales that's where the help stops. the nra obviously has a lot of money and therefore a lot of power going into these talks but gabby giffords' new anti-gun group is looking to counteract that. she and her husband mark kelly kick started a campaign this week that they're calling common sense measures to curb gun violence. now, they're hoping to raise $20 million for the 2014 congressional elections. that would match the nra's spending on last year's vote. both giffords and her husband are gun owners and they say while they support seco
by that tragedy in sandy hook elementary turn back to sort of the tribalized version of the debate over guns. we've seen that liberals, and you mentioned governor cuomo, you mentioned vice-president biden, attorney general eric holder in the mix, too, making it very plain, making it very clear that they see this as gun control, which haven't had a serious discussion about that in the country, really, in more than a decade, and going back to that issue. then you see the anxiety growing among people who are ardent supporters of the second amendment, that they say, we know what this is, and we're going to stand our ground. so that means that the outlook for what we thought we might have once had, which was a chance to do something quickly and do something with broad national support, is fading. >> megyn: how could they get broad national support on any legislation that cracks down on gun rights? i mean, the majority of this country wants a robust interpretation of the second amendment and you know, those polls moved around a little bit in the wake of the newtown, connecticut school shooting, but th
candidates for top story of the day starting with: >> i would say for me it is the sandy bill and the reason is that the g.o.p. does not own the narrative on these issues so i feel like i need to do their job for them and point out the pork in the senate bill and point out some of christie's missteps here. charles: i agree with you. the fact it is not the story of the day. it is the story of the great society. we are supposed to be helping people and it is just getting worse. stuart: dagen and connell, it is yours. connell: thank you stuart. dagen: i'm dagen mcdowell. connell: the president looking to make his choice for treasury secretary official today. dagen: also the talk of washington, the flu, lawmakers taking to twitter to urge the public to protect themselves from the spread of this terrible outbreak. connell: and the chamber of commerce president he wants some changes to dodd frank, some thoughts about economic growth. he's on with us live this hour to talk about it all. dagen: top of the hour, stocks now and every 15 minutes. nicole petallides at the new york stock exchange with wh
of the sandy hook mass kufrplt he's using his annual "state of the state" address today to layout his plan. he's looking for an expansion ever the state's existing assault weapons ban to include more types of firearms. a limit on the size of bullet clips or magazine has allow someone to fire off hundreds of rounds in mere seconds. he also wants sales of large quantities of ammunition to be flagged to law enforcement and he's calling for background checks to include a closer look at mental health records, something william was just mentioning. he also wants harsher sentences for those who commit crimes using guns. after a huge outcry cuomo who himself is a rifle owner has backed away from comments he made last month that the state may simply have to confiscate people's assault weapons. he's hoping to pass these measures with the help of state lawmakers, though he's not getting the support of republicans who are very influential in the state legislature. jenna: rick, thank you. jon: just in, new problems for boeing as a pair of its brand-new dreamliner jets run into problems at boston's logan ai
to be paul ryan is not a serious person because he voted against of course sandy relief right? he voted to keep people sleeping in their mini vans, because that's for the good of the country and for their own good and of course you said the zombie eyed had it and made sure his constituents knew where to find the sweet government checks. >> yeah, if there was only some kind of device where you can go back and check what they said before. >> stephanie: yes, and you said and people wondered why joe biden kept laughing at him. >> that may be my favorite part of the presidentsal campaign. because it's amazing to me that joe biden doesn't drink. because he has the perfect barroom personality. he looks like he spent his entire life arguing things in barrooms, and it's enormously likable. >> stephanie: it really is. >> so what is the story in washington. your show? >> stephanie: january 19th inauguration weekend. >> oh i will be there and so will my wife. >> stephanie: excellent. love you charlie pierce. >> see you later.
